Coaching with the IESM System
Six Steps can help you discover answers to persistent energy drains and unresolved stress:
1. Choose an immediate, bothersome stressor (Stress Point).
2. Acknowledge your strengths and celebrate previous "wins" with similar challenges.
I provide a safe harbor for you, to share your truths about what's working in your life and what is not. This sets the stage for affirming your strengths, learning from the past, and weaving these together to move forward.
3. Examine your Stress Point within the Wellness Blossom
What is limiting your progress or highest vision? The Wellness Blossom will help you generate fresh perspectives and increased awareness about your stay-awake-at-night problems.
4. Activate your power of insight to create "once and for all" solutions.
New perspectives and new insights to manage unresolved stress arise from your creative genius to discover new solutions. You are the "expert" in your life.
5. Create momentum with insight-generated solutions to your Stress Point
As you experience new insights and take action, you can feel stronger, more self-assured and more fulfilled.When you put your new insights into action, you power up your life.
6. Evaluate the results of insight-inspired actions without guilt
There is no failure, only opportunities for new insights, new awareness and new understanding.
